SASKATCHEWAN POLYTECHNIC REVIEW

I got to know about this college by an agency that helps finds you colleges, its name is Canam. A representative from Saskatchewan polytechnic was there that guided me about the courses/programs that they offer. He again helped me on how to apply for this program and told me that the application fee is $150. I also applied to the University of Regina I got accepted there also but I did not have the course that I preferred. I did my high school in Jalandhar, Punjab in 2018 and score 69% after that I came to Canada.


Exams - 

I was in Geomatics and surveying engineering but I changed it to civil engineering in 2019 i.e after 2 semesters. I joined geomatics and surveying because I had an interest in surveying but changed it because of my lack of interest in geomatics, so I changed it to civil engineering. So before applying here, I had to give IELTS exam in which the minimum requirement for admission is 6 bands in each segment and 6.5 bands overall. The batch sizes of my previous course were just 13 people which was really good and helped a lot in scoring good grades.
